Labs are the weekly training events that drive the ROTC program. On Thursday afternoons all the cadets come together and work as a team to hone their soldier skills and build comradery. These labs are planned and executed by the upperclassmen of ROTC and provide all involved with a great experience. Cadets get the chance to learn how to rappel, conduct land navigation and conduct drill and ceremony at a banquet at the end of the semester. Cadets also learn how to conduct reconnaissance, ambush, and raid missions using tactics as a mechanism to practice leadership. These labs teach cadets how to react properly under pressure and grow as leaders by providing them with opportunities to lead.
